New on 21 June 2018:

   D.W.I. Stamps and D.W.I. Covers: I have just added some very attractive stamps and also a couple very unusual DWI-transit covers, including one to Mexico that they managed to eventually deliver even without the town name!

   Iceland Stamps: There are about 75 (!!) new items from the 1930 Parliament (Althing) set, Scott #152-166. These range from almost ALL stamps of the set as various NH, Mint Hinged, and Used examples in TOP QUALITY, as well as some Bargains examples of the scarcer stamps.

   Sweden Stamps: I have just added a few nice singles, blocks, plate varieties, etc.

   U.S. Stamps: I have just added ANOTHER very fresh & attractive range of Washington-Franklin stamps, this time from 1917 to the end of the W-F era. Following those are many new really nice examples of 1922-1931 Fourth Bureau issues, including Kansas and Nebraska overprints. There are both NH and Mint Hinged stamps. Again, the common thread that connects these is the freshness and brilliant colors.

   A significant group of new Collection Lots, Albums, and Literature have been added.

New on 7 June 2018:

   D.W.I. Political Protest Labels: When the sale by Denmark of the DWI (Virgin Islands) to the U.S. was being considered, a few political labels were issued, mostly to protest the sale. I have just added to the website multiple examples of the scarcer protest label.

   Denmark Stamps: A great POSTFÆRGE overprint 4-block has just been added to the website.

   Finland Stamps: An attractive, but inexpensive mint example of one of the early "Serpentines" has just been added.

   Greenland Postal Savings Stamps: Virtually all Greenland collectors know about the Pakke-Porto (parcel post) "Bears", but few know that they were sometimes used as savings stamps in the national savings system operated by the post office (which was an arm of the KGH, the Royal Greenland Trading Company). Such stamps were often canceled with the special "Avane" (and number) postmark. What is even less known is that special purpose postal savings stamps were also issued. They are the same general size and format of the Pakke-Porto stamps. Two values are known, and one of them in two shades (which I seem to have been the first to report into the literature). These were canceled with the same types of postmarks that were used on the Pakke-Porto stamps. I have just added used examples of both values.

   Greenland Semi-Official Dafila and Faborg Booklets: As the result of a recent purchase, I have "discovered" (I am not aware of any other listings in the literature) TWO MORE MOUNTING VARIETIES and have been able to add to stock two other scarce varieties that had been out of stock for a long time.

   Iceland Christmas Seals (10 pages): I have just restocked most of the earliest National (Thorvaldsen Society / TB) seals, with most in stock in NH condition (scarce on these). If you collect Iceland and have not seen their beautiful Christmas seals, they are certainly worth a look.

   U.S. Covers: New this week are two interesting covers: A #1 that has been added to a stampless cover (but is priced very, very low even just for the plain stamp) and a Presidential MOURNING cover with contents.

   Worldwide Stamps: This week I have added stamps to Algeria and Ireland (5 pages).

   A significant group of new Collection Lots, Albums, and Literature have been added.

New on 24 May 2018:

   DWI Stamps: I have been restocking various DWI stamp issues.

   Finland Stamps: I have also been working on restocking various eras of Finnish stamps, though I do have much more yet to do.

   Iceland Stamps: I have been restocking in early issues, middle period, and back-of-book, including both mint and used stamps.

   U.S. Stamps: This week I continued adding new items, focusing on 1923-1938. Starting with the very scarcer "coil waste" stamps and through the Perf 10 issues, all the way to the Prexies.

   A significant group of new Collection Lots, Albums, and Literature have been added.

New on 10 May 2018:

   Book: Postal Rates in Iceland 1870-2009, Second (2017) Edition The primary reference for Icelandic postal rates. Significantly UPDATED. Entirely in English and with 229 pages and color illustrations. A monumental work including the local, domestic, Nordic, European, and world rates; parcel rates, special services, etc. Due to newly obtained information still in preparation, the worldwide parcel rates only extend up to WWII (thus for now, keep your old edition for the later world parcel rates). The rate tables are easy to understand and use; the air tables include both the supplemental air rate information and the total of the air and the surface components.

   U.S. Stamps: I have just added a nice range of Mint U.S. Stamps in the Scott #551-573 range. There are both NH and Hinged stamps offered, with a range of centering.

   A significant group of new Collection Lots, Albums, and Literature have been added.

New on 3 May 2018:

   Faroe Machine Stamps: I am finally able to offer a new denomination type and underlying stamp printing for Faroe's first issue of machine stamps. I have also updated and expanded my listings of the stamps and the FDCs of the stamps.

   Greenland Inverted Overprints: I have just added three values of the 1945 overprinted set with inverted overprints, two NH and one lightly hinged. All have certificates of course. I have also just added the 1996 Queen with inverted overprint, with a certificate and a signed statement from the discoverer.

   Greenland Semi-Official Booklets: In addition to all the individual booklets, plus some varieties, I can offer the complete set of 16 booklets at a great price!

   Iceland Stamps: I have restocked Scott #152-166, the 1930 Parliament set (in NH, Mint Hinged, and Used), including a nice range of the scarce high denomination stamps, #162-166.

   Norway Stamps: I have just added a very attractive Scott #41, the 12 øre green Unshaded Posthorn. This stamp is often seen damaged or repaired because of the type of mail it was used on. However this example is not only extremely well centered, it is completely without any defects and in excellent quality.

   U.S. Stamps: I have just added a nice range of Mint U.S. Stamps in the Scott #231-336 range.

   A significant group of new Collection Lots, Albums, and Literature have been added.

New on 26 April 2018:

   Denmark Stamps: New additions include a beautifully centered NH example of the key airmail stamp, Scott #C5; and an outstanding example of the very scarce Scott #O4 (4 skilling Official, perf 12.5), with certificate

   Danish West Indies - U.S. Virgin Islands Transition Cover: There are not many (affordable) opportunities for the stamps of two countries to be used on a Scandinavian-related cover, but here is one for a very modest price. When Denmark sold the DWI to the U.S., the stamps of both countries were valid in DWI for a period of time and could also be used in combination.

   Faroe Number One: I have just added a very attractive Faroe #1 (the 1919 2-on-5 surcharge) with wonderful centering and nice appearance. It has a really great price because it has a pulled perf and a couple other shorter perfs, though it really looks nice. It is accompanied by my Jay Smith color certificate with lifetime (my life) guarantee.

   Finland Stamps: In addition to general restocking, I have added to the website very nice Used VF and F-VF examples of Scott #69. This stamp is quite hard to find so it is unusual to have them in stock long enough to put the on the website.

   Sweden Stamps: I have just added a great example of the only bi-colored Swedish semi-postal stamp (Scott #B21) and a beautiful but inexpensive example of Scott #LX1. The latter started out as being an officially issued local post stamp, but eventually became valid for broader postage use. Additionally it started out as a skilling currency stamp and ended up as an öre currency stamp but is one of the older non-denominated stamps one can obtain.

   U.S. Stamps: I have just added a great range of mint "First Bureau" (with triangles) stamps, both unwatermarked and watermarked.

   Worldwide Stamps: This week I have added stamps to Italy Aegean Islands, North Borneo and Northern Rhodesia.

   A significant group of new Collection Lots, Albums, and Literature have been added.

New on 12 April 2018:

   Denmark Stamps: I have again been working on Denmark, this time two areas: 1) The 1912 & 1915 5 kr Post Office issues, Scott #82 & 135; and 2) the 1912, 1915, and 1918 surcharges (overprints) in NH, Mint Hinged, and Used. These include Scott #79-81, #136-137, and #138-154. There is a broad range of quality, from Superb to hidden faults, at appropriate prices.

   United States Stamps: This week I have added an eclectic group of items such as: 1932 Washington Bicentennial plate blocks containing Scott-listed plate varieties; the lowest-price White Plains souvenir sheet I have ever offered; a great set of Overrun Countries plate blocks (they include Denmark and Norway); Coil Misperforations, etc.

   India Stamps: Many stamps have just been added, from 1854 to modern issues, including several very scarce stamps and an extremely scarce Official overprinted stamp.

   A significant group of new Collection Lots, Albums, and Literature have been added.

New on 5 April 2018:

   Denmark Stamps: I have just restocked Mint and Used stamps in the Christian X (Scott #97-131) series.

   Iceland Stamps: I have just restocked many stamps in the Christian X issues, with two different designs of the portrait, plus Official stamps for government use, ran from 1 eyr through 10 kr and thus provided denominations for every conceivable postal purpose. The stamps are colorful and fun to collect. First Design, Second Design, and Officials.

   Instanta Perforation Gauge: Made by the venerated Stanley Gibbons firm, this perforation gauge has been hard to get for a couple of years, perhaps due to the firm's major reorganization. Since the long-term future of the SG firm is not at all clear, I suggest obtaining this gauge now while you can!

New on 29 March 2018:

   Denmark Stamps: I have just added a wonderful used Denmark Scott #10 [the 1863 16 skilling rouletted issue] that is a real stunner. Also a Scott #56 overprint variety, and some other nice items.

   Denmark Plate Blocks: I have just added a really attractive group of the Christian X design, all either bicolors or overprints, "classic era" plate blocks.

   Denmark Nazi-Party Christmas Seals: That title certainly sounds a bit odd, but yes they did issue Christmas seals. Only one item is currently available (I am always interested in buying these), but this page does show images of the other designs

   Denmark Railway Locomotive Personnel Christmas Seals: Issued as a "Help Fund" for injured personnel or the families of deceased personnel, starting in 1914 and running through 1957. The design remained the same for the entire 44 years, printed in a stunning array of colors which changed annually. Perforations and paper changed a couple of times over their run, but the format and sheet size (9) remained the same. For the first time in many years I have obtained a few more examples, including some of which I have only previously (in 45 years) had one or two examples and one which is the first I have ever had. I can even offer a couple of the very scarce sheets.

   Denmark Test Stamp: I have added an early ca.1933-1936 test stamp, engraved by Johannes Britze who engraved all the Danish (engraved) postage stamps from 1933 to 1944. It was apparently created to test inks being considered for the new engraved stamps. This is a rare one, with only a few examples known outside the Postal Museum.

   Finland Covers: I have just added a 1937 Sailing Ships Red Cross semi-postal (Scott #B24-6) second day cover that is priced at $39 instead of the $1000 (!!) that a first day cover would fetch.

   Polar Submarine Cover: If you have not read about the 1931 Wilkins-Ellsworth Trans-Arctic Submarine Expedition, it is worth learning more about it. Explorer Wilkins was supported by wealthy Ellsworth on this quest, but still tried to raise funds by selling covers that were carried on the expedition. Covers exist from various legs of the journey even though the expedition ended in disaster.

   Confederate States of America: In the 1950s a prominent stamp dealer created clearly-labeled facsimiles of CSA stamps that were sold for a nominal amount simply to make available images of stamps so that under-funded collectors could have something to put in their albums. Sometime in the last 20 (??) years, crude reproductions of those facsimiles were made. I just obtained some full sheets of the reproductions from a stamp dealer (not from the creator of them) and offer them for reference purposes at a nominal price to cover the handling cost. The groups consist of 12 different sheets of 25 stamps each, thus 300 stamps total... for $10 (plus p/h on small orders and overseas orders). I do not condone the creation of such material, but once created it is important that reference collections of fakes & forgeries include examples of them so as to educate and protect future collectors.

   United States Stamps: This week I have added another strong group of Washington-Franklin issues and also an interesting range of items that, for lack of a better reason, are "fun stuff" that simply appealed to me: Attractive used Washington-Franklin blocks, used Lindbergh airmail booklet pane, National Parks imperforate "line" blocks, misperforations, airmail coil showing plate number, etc.

   Faroe Stamps: This week a Never Hinged Superb example of Scott #5 (the 50-on-5 WWII-era overprint) has been added.

   Finland Stamps: I have just added a nice example of a 1950 magazine wrapper sent to the U.S. that survived the grounding of the "s/s BORE I" ship that was carrying it from Finland to Sweden for onward transit to the U.S.

   Sweden Stamps: New items this week include a very attractive Scott #14 with light cancel and the "1855 perforations"; an official stamp bearing a terrific strike of the experimental "beehive" cancellation; and mint examples all six high-values of the 1924 UPU Congress and UPU Anniversary sets, priced very low due to minor gum aging.

   United States Stamps: This week I have added another strong group of Washington-Franklin issues covering a range of catalog numbers that I have not refreshed in a while.

New on 8 March 2018:

   Danish West Indies Stamps: New items include a very nice Used "Harbor" set on pieces, but priced as just normal used stamps.

   Denmark Stamps: New items include a very nice Used example of Scott #1 with certificate, well-centered Mint examples of the scarce 1919 overprints and also a fabulous Used Scott #Q3.

   Faroe Stamps: A nice group of the WWII overprints, including both Used and NH, have been added.

   Finland Stamps: A nice Used example of the scarce Scott #69 has just been added.

   Greenland Stamps: New items are represented by beautiful NH blocks of the first issue, NH plate blocks of the 1956 overprints, and great examples of Pakke-Portos including #Q5 THICK PAPER Mint and #Q10 Used with proper cancellation.

   Iceland Stamps: There is a beautiful example of Official stamp Scott #O2 with a very nice and scarce cancellation, a very nice proof of the triangular 1930 airmail stamp, and a scarce overprint variety.

   Norway Covers: Early (1880s) mail from Norway to the new Norwegian-Americans in the rural Midwest is scarce; most of it did not survive the difficult conditions in which the recipients often lived. I have just added a very attractive example that happens to be franked with the solo use of one of the scarcest stamps of the time period.

   Sweden Stamps: New items include an unusually nice NH example of the scarce watermarked UPU stamp Scott #228 and a super-nice NH example of Scott #B10 (quite scarce well centered).

   A significant group of new Collection Lots, Albums, and Literature have been added.

New on 25 January 2018:

   Denmark Stamps: I have just added the sought after Scott #22 in great quality; coil-combination pairs including with the Pearl Gray 3 øre Wavy-Line stamp issue (the only source for this scarce color); scarcer Bicolors in nice quality; and a scarce early Essay.

   Iceland Stamps: Several new items added including the rare Scott #6 (4 skilling, perforation 12.5).

   Norway Stamps: A very nice set of the WWII-era Official Nazi "Sun Cross" stamps, in NH 4-blocks, has been added.

   Sweden Stamps: One of the most challenging Swedish stamps that is not a "rarity" is Scott #161, the 60 öre Crown & Posthorn with Wavy-Line Watermark. I have just added a Superb-Jumbo example that comes from the edge of the paper roll with an enormous "wing margin". I have never had such an example.

   Latvia Map Sheet: Following WWI, Latvia was still a very turbulent place, with continuing armed conflict. Their first stamp issue was printed under very difficult circumstances; they had little paper and the printing plant (and the stamps) had to be evacuated at least once due to enemy action. To overcome the lack of paper, Latvia's first stamp issue was printed on the BACK OF WWI-ERA GERMAN MILITARY MAPS. There were 60-some different maps utilized and two different printing plates for the stamps. Latvia #1 (imperforate) and #2 (perforated) were printed in this manner. This is one of the most unusual and fascinating philatelic subjects.

   AFA Denmark 2018 Catalog The primary annual catalog used in Denmark. Lists all Danish, DWI, Faroe, Slesvig, and Greenland stamps with COLOR illustrations throughout. Includes FDCs, booklets, most major varieties, advertising pairs, coil combination pairs, machine stamps, reprints, Christmas seals, etc. Also prices postally used covers up to 1996. If you collect Denmark (and/or Faroe, DWI, or Greenland), you will enjoy this catalog. Special in this edition: 3-Ring Numeral Cancel town listing.

   The Ugly Duckling: Hans Christian Andersen and Danish Stamps (Bundgaard, 2005) A fascinating, well-illustrated, COMPLETELY IN ENGLISH 61-page book dedicated to the HCA stamp (and postal stationery) designs of Denmark. Very readable and very interesting -- just in the first minute I learned of a major stamp variety of which I was unaware! From essays to printing to the booklets, use on covers, the Flying Trunk postal stationery, and the modern stamp issues, this covers it all. Warning: This book may cause a sudden urge to collect HCA stamps.

   By Mörck (Nordstrøm, 2016) A wonderful new book about the work of STAMP ENGRAVER, artist, and lover of life, Martin Mörck (Morck). Engraving stamps since the 1970s, Mörck has built up an impressive resume of Scandinavian stamps and also from many other countries. Though each artist is their own person, I believe I can see Slania's influence in some of Mörck's work. This 250+ page hardbound book is COMPLETELY IN ENGLISH, packed with super-high quality illustrations, and very interesting and wide-ranging text. Whether you appreciate the artistic quality of stamps or wonderful stamp engraving, you will greatly enjoy this book.

New on 26 October 2017:

   Denmark Stamps: I have been working on restocking all time periods of the Danish listings, in NH, Mint Hinged, and Used. There are a lot of very useful stamps listed that are worth a look if you are trying to fill in your Danish collection.

   Finland Stamps: I have also been restocking all time periods of the Finnish listings, in NH, Mint Hinged, and Used. There are a lot of very useful stamps listed that are worth a look if you are trying to fill in your Finnish collection.

   U.S. Early Commemorative Stamps and Washington-Franklin Stamps: This week I have added a super group of the 1904-1907 early commemoratives, and the later part of the Washington-Franklin issues, with many in really outstanding quality. As you probably know, most of these early commemoratives were closely placed on the printing plate, thus have very small margins; they are also usually poorly centered. For some it can be a real challenge just finding an example for which the perforations do not cut the design. I think you will be impressed with this group.

   Greenland "Wrong Color" Overprint Stamps: I have today added a nicely centered group of NH "wrong color" overprints of the 1945 "American Issue", the 'a' numbers in the Scott #19-25 set. There are also many of the normal-color overprints in NH, Mint Hinged, and even some Used.

   U.S. Classic Stamps: I have now added a really nice group of 33 classic 1847-1873 U.S. stamps, ALL WITH CERTIFICATES, including quite a few stamps that are seldom offered (especially at such reasonable prices).

   U.S. Duck Stamps (several pages): I have just added a very nice group of about 30 Federal "Ducks", from early issues to recent, from NH to Lightly Hinged to Used. These are mostly numbers that I had sold out of, so if you have gaps in your collection, be sure to take a look.

   Greenland Pakke-Porto Stamps: I have just added a very nice mint example of the Scott #Q5 THICK PAPER stamp.

   Iceland Stamps: I have just added a very interesting range of foreign cancellations on Icelandic stamps. These mostly came from mail carried by or posted on the many Icelandic fishing boats that offloaded their catch in Norway, Denmark, United Kingdom, etc. This group includes some really unusual items. I have also added a range of other cancellation types, plate varieties, and also printings of and cancellations on the scarce first 20 aur Official stamp ... including a rare Danish parcel post cancellation on this scarce stamp.

   Malayan States Stamps: I have just added a tremendous range of stamps, starting with Federation issues, and then each State. There are a lot of the "middle values" that are often missing from collections.

   Denmark Stamps: I have just added a wonderful NH Scott #Q10, and a beautiful example of the Scott #87 PEARL GRAY in a combination coil pair (the only source for this stamp), as well as many other attractive stamps.

   Greenland Stamps: Many modern issues have been stocked in mint hinged condition (about 20% less cost than NH).

   Iceland Stamps: I have just added some very nice early plate varieties (including a "retouched hair" on the Double King issue) and several top-notch NH stamps.

   United States Stamps: I have just added a tremendous group of 45 1908-1916 Washington-Franklin and Pan-Pacific Exposition items in the range Scott #333-458. All are either mint hinged or never hinged. 15 HAVE CERTIFICATES (sometimes more than one certificate). The quality and freshness is really outstanding! Included are some of the scarce coils, with certificates of course. If you collect the U.S. issues of this time period, these really deserve your attention.

New on 7 September 2017:

   Sweden Stamps: I have just added a range of early Swedish stamps. Many are examples with well-centered postmarks, but there are also mint and used color varieties and a scarcer plate variety.

   Slania-Engraved: It is not often that I can offer something engraved by Slania, that is a really unusual postal item, which most collectors have never seen. There is a Monaco aerogram with a non-engraved picture of a Slania Royal Palace engraving that many Slania collectors ARE aware of. However, what about that engraving? That engraving exists (though is rarely offered for sale) as an "art engraving". However, a few years before the aerogram was issued, the post office "issued" an engraved official postal Christmas card that they used to send greetings to various officials, journalists, etc. It is this Christmas card which few people know about and of which I can offer an example.

New on 31 August 2017:

   Finland Proofs: One of each sheet of some 1930s commemorative and semi-postal stamps were "taken home without authorization" by a worker in the Finnish stamp printing plant. The stamps are essentially proofs (complete except for gumming and perforating), but you could also call them imperforates. I have available three sets Red Cross semi-postals.

   Iceland Stamps: I have just added some interesting Icelandic Officials, including some unusual plate varieties and a NH Scott #O49 with plate number (but priced as a normal single).

   Norway Stamps: I have just added a wonderful mint example of Scott #70a, the early Bluish Green on Yellowish Paper stamp that is rarely offered.

New Printed Price Lists Available by Postal Mail  
New printed price lists of all -- and only -- the items on the website are available. The printed price lists do not include the illustrations. Due to the amount of work involved, the printed price lists are updated only every few weeks.

There are separate price lists for:

   Each Scandinavian Country:

       Aland
       Danish West Indies
       Denmark (including Slesvig)
       Faroe
       Finland (including Karelia and North Ingermanland)
       Greenland
       Iceland
       Norway (does NOT yet include all "regular" stamps)
       Sweden (does NOT yet include all "regular" stamps)

   Slania-Engraved items (also Greta Garbo)

   United States Stamps (and few covers)
   Worldwide Stamps (and a few covers). Does not include U.S. or Scandinavia.

   Scandinavian Philatelic Literature

Please only request the lists you actually need; they are very expensive to print and mail.

Please read this if you are in the U.S. or Canada or this if you are in another country. Then send an email and please specifically state if you want specific Scandinavian countries, Slania, United States, Worldwide, or Scandinavian philatelic literature price lists. (Repeated non-specific requests will probably be ignored.)

Please note that these lists only include what you see listed on this website and are provided simply as a convenience. If what you are seeking is not shown on the website, then please send your want list rather than just requesting a price list. (If it is not on the website, it won't be in the price list.) Clients who send want lists always have access to the freshest stock and new items as they come in.

For U.S. and Canadian Clients...
The first copy of printed price lists will be sent to U.S. and Canadian clients at no charge. Further updates can be sent, upon request, at no charge to those clients actively making purchases or who send want lists. Otherwise there may be a postage charge for further updates -- these lists cost several dollars each to print and mail.

For Overseas Clients...
Unfortunately, due to the large number of requests received from overseas people who seem to just collect "free price lists" -- and because a) all the information the lists contain is on this website and b) the overseas airmail postage cost is very high -- there will be a MINIMUM $10 shipping charge (payable by MasterCard, Visa, PayPal, cash, US$ check, etc.) for price lists sent to overseas addresses. A matching-amount credit voucher will be included with the price lists and will be valid only on purchases (totaling) at least five times the amount of the credit. Example: If the shipping cost is $10, you will receive a $10 credit which will be valid on a purchase of $50 or more.

Please email to inform me of the desired price lists and to learn the shipping cost for them. I will need to know exactly which price lists you wish to receive and I will need to know your COMPLETE POSTAL ADDRESS.

Once you have been informed of the shipping cost and if you wish to proceed....

To send shipping cost payment by PayPal, use the email address "paypal@JaySmith.com", use a subject of "Price List Shipping Payment" and be sure to indicate again the price lists you desire and include your complete postal address.

To send your MasterCard or Visa number, please use my secure payment website. For your security, never put a credit card number in a normal email!

To send a US$ check or cash (at your own risk), please see my postal address information.

Facit >> Scott and Scott >> Facit Catalog Number Concordances
 
To meet my own need for catalog number concordances, I have finally started publishing comprehensive catalog number concordances for the Scandinavian countries. At this moment only DWI, Greenland, and Iceland are ready (the later two only up to 1995, so far). However, I will be preparing these bidirectional catalog number concordances for all the Scandinavian countries and eventually will include the other specialized catalogs as well. Reservations are welcomed. These are very inexpensive (considering the labor required to make them) and are published loose-leaf. An attractive binder is available. I intend to update the concordances annually; subscriptions are available. Though these have only been available for a few weeks, they have been a great hit. You will find them extremely useful!

Facit Specialized Catalog PAGES BY THE COUNTRY.
 
These are genuine Facit Catalog pages, not copies (of course!). They are loose pages; please be aware that there is no room for binding -- you will have to figure out for yourself how to bind or otherwise manage them. The pricing is by country. There are sometimes conflicts involving back-to-back countries, thus I am offering the pages a number of different ways to compensate for this. Supply is very limited. If you have always wanted a Facit Catalog, but could not justify it for "just one country", this is your chance -- but you must act quickly. Here is more information about the Facit Scandinavian Specialized Catalog.  
Shopping Cart System and Secure Website for Credit Card Payment  
My shopping cart system is fully functional for almost all the price list pages. The cart system will be extended to the few remaining pages very soon. I also have a secure website for secure acceptance of credit card payments. You can use this method any time you wish to send your credit card information: for placing orders, making approval payments, or for updating new issue and Stender supplement credit card information, etc. I take the privacy and security of your information very seriously -- I never share your information with anybody for any reason.  
Scandinavian Philatelic Literature, including the Scandinavian Annual Catalogs  
The web versions of my philatelic literature price lists were last updated on 22 June 2018 and are the most current. Knowledge is the key to enjoying your collection and the key to buying wisely.
